Chance the Rapper Attacked During Concert

(Radio.com) One Chance the Rapper fan took his enthusiasm too far during the Chicago rapper's Magnificent Coloring World Tour stop in Miami on Monday night (Oct 10) by rushing the stage while Chance was performing.

As Chance danced across the stage with smoke effects adding to the energy, a man rushed in stage left and grabbed Chance from behind. He was naturally taken aback, and ended up body slamming the fan to the ground as security rushed in. Chance lost his iconic "3" hat in the process.

In the wake of Christina Grimmie's death at the hands of a deranged fan it's even more important to respect the boundary between audience and the artist on stage. A fan captured the moment on camera. Watch here.

AC/DC Singer Call Humbled Airbourne Frontman

(Classic Rock) Airbourne drummer Ryan O'Keeffe says his brother Joel was "humbled" when some fans wanted him to front AC/DC. His name was mentioned as a possible replacement for frontman Brian Johnson, who was forced to step back from AC/DC or risk going deaf earlier this year.

His place was eventually taken by Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose for the remainder of their Rock Or Bust tour - and while Joel never got the call, Ryan says he would have done it in a heartbeat if the opportunity arose.

He tells The Metal Voice: "He wasn't officially approached but he was humbled by a lot of comments with some people saying he should do it.

"He said, 'If that ever happened, the first thing I'd do is call Brian and get his permission and the second thing I'd do is call a cab to the airport.'" Read more here.

Master P Talks Solange's 'Seat At The Table'

(Radio.com) Master P, who contributed narration to the new Solange songs "The Glory is in You" and "The Chosen One" has spoken about his involvement in the making of A Seat at the Table.

Speaking about his role on tracks like "The Glory is in You" and "The Chosen Ones," he explained that the audio came from a conversation he had with the artist in the studio. "There wasn't a lot of people in the studio, it was an intimate setting with the engineer and we just talked about what's going on, looking at issues and looking at what's going on in the world and also our culture and our differences," he told Complex. "I think the magic came because it's from a man and a woman's perspective in views and values."

In the narrations, Master P draws parallels, connecting his own rise to self-made mogul-status--particularly his insistence on doing it independently--and the overarching themes of empowerment and agency. Both the artist and producer share Louisiana roots.

When asked how Solange described the album, he said, "She told me it's gonna be soulful. There's a lot of things going on [in the country], a lot of injustice, women not believing in their beauty and who they are. She told me that she was doing her, she was sticking by what she believes in. She wasn't trying to make a record for everybody, she was trying to make a record for her fans and also make music that the world could relate to and for people to understand that we are kings and queens."

Wyclef Jean Compares Young Thug To Tupac

(Radio.com) When Young Thug was working on his mixtape Jeffrey, there was one artist he knew he had to work with: Wyclef Jean. As it turns out, the partnership was such a rewarding one that Jean wanted to work with him again. He invited Young Thug to collaborate on "I Swear" off his new EP J'ouvert.

In a new interview with Pigeons and Planes, Jean revealed why he felt the need to collaborate with Thugger so soon after working together. It might have something to do with the parallel he drew between the young Atlanta rapper and one of the biggest names in hip-hop ever to emerge out of Compton.

"He reminded me of a modern Tupac, in a sense--in a revolutionary sense," he said, explaining that it was less about Young Thug's style and more about his interest and awareness in the world around him. "I mean that by, alright, you might see a thug, but his connection to history seemed similar to what Pac understood." Read more here.

Singled Out: Alexander Wolfe's Fixed For Today

London based singer/songwriter Alexander Wolfe will be releasing his new single 'Fixed For Today' on Friday (October 14th) and to celebrate we asked him to tell us the story behind the song. Here is the story:

I wrote the bones of 'Fixed For Today' when I was kid, when I say kid, I mean like 18... So in various forms and versions it's been knocking around forever. One version had this 60s girl group chorus, another version was like an acoustic Dylan song with harmonica all over it. In various incarnations it has nearly made it onto all 3 of my previous albums.

Which is interesting because that is literally never how I write, I always go forward, never revisit old stuff. But this song just wouldn't go away. It just kept knocking at the door.

The 2016 version of the song is about feeling ok, it's about getting through a tricky thing and realizing that life can be a motherf***er, but that's ok. All through 2015 I was tangled up in a bad record deal with a sketchy label, and I wrote the chorus with my brother on the morning I was released from the deal, I suppose it is the sound of me being set free. Blowing the cobwebs out.

We recorded the song In Dean St Studios in Soho one night, it's this beautiful old recording studio which David Bowie and T-Rex used to record in. I played all the instruments except the drums which were played by my friend Steve Pilgrim and we just threw it down, tried to keep it rough and spontaneous. The vocal on the track is the guide vocal. Lastly my friend Trevor Mires added some Otis Redding horns and that was it. It went down really easy.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
